Description

Physostegia virginiana (obedient plant, obedience, or false dragonhead) is native to North America, where it is distributed from eastern Canada to northern Mexico. Physostegia are known commonly as obedient plants because a flower pushed to one side will often stay in that position.

It is a rhizomatous perennial herb producing clumps of erect, stems 2 to 4 feet tall. It has long, dense spikes of lipped "snapdragon-like" flowers in the summer. It is a good plant for adding late-season flowers to a garden, and flowers last for many weeks. Plants grow well in the sun or shade, and is one of the limited perennials that bloom well despite full shade.

Type: Hardy perennial

Hardiness zones: 4-9

Height: 3', 36", 90 cm

Location: Does equally well in sun or shade

Seeds per pack: 20

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 6-8 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature (20-22 °C, 68-72 °F) for them to germinate. Germination is generally 30-60 days after the warming period, though some can take longer.
